3. The steel shaft is formed by attaching a hollow shaft to a

solid shaft. Determine the maximum torque T that can be
applied to the ends of the shaft without exceeding a shear
stress of 70 MPa or an angle of twist of 2.5˚ in the 3.5-m
length. Use G = 83 GPa for steel.
4. The solid compound shaft, made of three different materials,
carries the two torques shown. (a) Calculate the maximum
shear stress in each material. (b) Find the angle of rotation of
the free end of the shaft. The shear moduli are 28 GPa for
aluminum, 83 GPa for steel, and 35 GPa for bronze.
5. The shaft carries a total torque T0 that is uniformly
distributed over its length L. Determine the angle of twist of
the shaft in terms of T0, L, G, and J.
6. The ends of the compound shaft are attached to rigid walls.
The maximum shear stress is limited to 10 000 psi for the
bronze segment AB and 14 000 psi for the steel segment
BC. Determine the diameter of each segment so that each
material is simultaneously stressed to its permissible limit
when the torque T = 16 kip · ft is applied as shown. The shear
moduli are 6 x 106 psi for bronze and 12 x 106 psi for steel.
7. The stepped solid steel shaft ABC is attached to rigid
supports at each end. Determine the diameter of segment
BC for which the maximum shear stress in both segments
will be equal when the torque T is applied at B. Note that the
lengths of both segments are given and the diameter of
segment AB is 60 mm.
8. The four rigid gears, loaded as shown in the figure are
attached to a 2-in.-diameter steel shaft. Compute the angle
of rotation of gear A relative to gear D. Use G = 12 x 106 psi
for the shaft.
